Rare Third Reich stopwatch, approx. 2 3/4" dia., marked "U[ntersee]-Jagd" ("Undersea-Hunting") at the center of the dial, believed to have been used during anti-submarine warfare to time depth charges. The outer ring of the dial is marked to time one hundred seconds, with the inner rings labeled "sm Annaherung" ("Approach"), which together can give the speed of a target submarine based on observations made by a submarine hunter on the surface. The rear of the blued steel case bears an electropencil national eagle and swastika over the initials "KM", indicating adoption by the Kriegsmarine. The movement bears the star-shaped maker's mark of the Junghans firm of Schramberg, with the serial number "97132". The movement cannot be wound or made to run under our examination, and likely requires repair. Shows some spots of oxidation to the reverse of the case, with some wear to the finish on the fob ring. Estimated accordingly.
